A Name to Remember:  Noro!
 Some products are so widely accepted that their brand has come to represent the entire product line.  I refer to Jello�, Windex�, Band-aids�, Kleenex� and Scotch Tape� as familiar generic products.  For knitters, Noro is synonymous with fine quality multi-color yarn that is the standard for all others.  Like other widely adopted brands, it's the high quality and leading edge product development that distinguishes Noro Yarns from the competition.  The artistic blend of specially selected fibers, all in richly dyed tones has made Noro Yarns famous for outstanding and extravagant yarns and color compositions.
At The Knitter's Edge, we pride ourselves on selecting the best yarns we can find to bring to your needles. Our vast selection of Noro yarns are something in which we take great pride.  Please scan our shelves for the best of the best- and remember the name Noro.
Highlights of upcoming classes
Tuesdays & Thursdays
Diana's Class times
Felted EntreLac Purse
 Felted bag
Diana just finished this felted tote bag worked in Noro Iro using the Entrelac Technique.  Noro yarns are known for their fabulous color changes and this yarn doesn't disappoint.  Join Diana to learn this technique- which is easier than it looks.
Tuesday & Thursday
6:30 - 8:30 PM
Nightsongs Shawl with Linda M. 
Linda Miller has started this new Shawl!  It is called Nightsongs.  The pattern is worked in charts- and even though the charts threw some during the first night- Linda emailed me today saying "I GOT IT!!" Sometimes new techniques are like that- they baffle, and then BAM!  You just get it.
The pattern charts for this shawl are repeatable so you can easily make the shawl larger.  This was important to Linda as she wanted to use all of the 550 yards of the new Blue Heron Rayon Metallic she purchased for it.  The pattern as written calls for 1 hank of Handmaiden Sea Silk ( we got that!) at 440 yards- so you can use that too.
By the way- you can freely come to either of Linda's classes- Tuesday or Thursday.  So if one week the Tuesday works best- come then, and the next week- Thursday of it suits your schedule better. 
Tuesdays 4:00-6:00 PM and Thursdays 6:30 - 8:30 PM
Great American Afghan with Diana
Diana's 3rd squareDiana has knit her 3rd square for her afghan. Join up for a great deal of learning and some fun knitting
Thursdays 10:00-12:00 PM
Washcloths with JoAnne
Christmas stripes
Next week I offer an easy challenge to knit with 2 colors of cotton using slip stitches.  I chose Christmas colors because it is never too early to get started.  Bring size 8 needles.  You will need 2 colors of Fantasy Naturale.
In the weeks ahead I have some really cool ideas for this washcloth class, and not all the ideas are washcloths, so as I said before...stay tuned...
